Spring Branch Education Foundation awards 122 scholarships
Spring Branch ISD graduates receive $174,900
Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF) awarded 122 scholarships to Spring Branch Independent School District seniors—a total of $174,900.
“The Foundation’s scholarship committee members are always impressed with the stories reflected in the scholarship applications we receive,” said Cece Thompson, SBEF executive director. “Many of our recipients will be the first in their families to attend college or a career-training program.
“We take a holistic approach to awarding scholarships. We look at personal qualities, school and community involvement, family life and academics. Our honorees include students up and down class rankings, campus and community volunteers and English language learners. These scholarships are a vote of confidence as graduates take their next educational step.”
Throughout the school year, Spring Branch ISD staff members contribute to the SBEF Employee Campaign, funding scholarships for SBISD graduates who are children of district employees. In August 2019, employees were asked to contribute to SBEF’s 2019-20 Employee Campaign scholarship fund. They eagerly responded.
“The response was so great we awarded a $1,250 scholarship to 36 graduates. We’re honored to recognize SBISD employees and their children,” Thompson said.
